John Rutczynski passed away peacefully January 12, 2016 at his home.
John was born September 11, 1948 in Calgary. His family moved to Salmon Arm in 1960. John started his pipe laying career in Salmon Arm then moved to Vancouver following the work. He moved back to Salmon Arm in 1991 and worked for Mounce Construction until 2013 when he very reluctantly retired due to health reasons.
John leaves behind his good friend Norma Kaufman, niece Diana, sister Chiquita, brother in-law Andrew and many good friends.
As per John’s wishes there will be no funeral service but there will be a memorial held sometime in the early spring when it will be easier for friends traveling from farther away who wish to attend.
